    1. Medical hemostat locking forceps [Kelly clamps] (thin, curved ends most handy)--find at hamfests when they re-open. Semiconductor lead heat-sink,
    fastener retrieval, wire routing or extraction in bundles . $4.

    2. Flush-cutter pliers--Xcelite, Klein---don't know how I went decades without them. $10.

    3. Dental probe--for clearing PC board thru-holes, component extraction through holes, and tube socket & switch terminal clearing for repairs.
    Ask your dentist or hygenist to save a couple when they're tossed-out for condition. $0.

    A key. Well maybe two keys. A straight key and a set of paddles.

    paper, pencils and good math skills!
    you cant always have a calculator with you all the time.
    and best of all a cool head is needed when troubleshooting an intermittent problem.
